Craving in October


Here are some of the lovelies I am gonna "have" to get in October. I just wish Fall finally settled in Charlotte. We've been suffering though a bad case of Indian Summer. I need a chill in the air to sport these goodies.

A few weeks ago the amazing folks at Projecteo sent me one of their tiny projectors to play with. Lemme tell ya' it is the coolest thing I have seen in a long time.

All you have to do is go on their website, link your Instagram feed to their site and choose nine of your fave pictures per wheel. In a few days you'll have an excuse to turn off the light and spend a great time looking at your memories projected onto your wall.

Some of my all time favorite memories are of my family sitting together in the dark looking at our favorite pictures. Projecteo let's you do it anywhere, any time and there is no bulky, heavy equipment to set up. Just press the little red button and voila!

There is no doubt I'll be filling many a Christmas stocking with a Projecteo.

Fall crafts are in the air.

It must be the slight chill in the air, but I am feeling extra crafty lately. So, when the folks at contacted me about a creating a Fall craft project, I said, oh yeah! I love and use all the time. There is nothing like finding a great deal and discounts to get anything from groceries to materials for a home improvement project.

They were kind enough to provide me with a gift certificate to to get supplies and I immediately thought of my Thanksgiving table setting this year. I know it's a little soon, but I gotta get ready, y'all.

I used my Silhouette Cameo machine to cut these awesome little fall leaves and used them to create my menus, place cards and a little treat box to give my guests as they leave.

I used craft card stock which I adore and textured card stock in different colors for the leaves and feathers.

I arranged them on top of each other until I found a combo I liked and attached to my place cards, menu envelopes and goodie boxes.

I have been a little obsessed with baker's twine so I had to include it in my project. I used a Crop-a-dile to create a little notch on the sides to keep the twine from sliding off the cards.

The menus were printed on Paper Source's beautiful paper with dark brown ink.

Here's how they turned out:

She is here. Blink. She is ten!

My perfect baby girl turns ten today. That means that for the past ten years and nine months I have been on cloud nine.
Happy birthday, my Nati. You are my all.
